Real-time maintenance for industrial machines
Industrial grade machine protection integrates directly into your existing control platform. Machine condition is continually monitored for common fault conditions of impacts, component fatigue and friction. This allows the timely and predictable scheduling of maintenance before major damage or failure and production downtime. Machines are continuously and permanently protected unlike intermittent monitoring systems.
Easy connection thanks to IO-Link
The industrial proven IO-Link system simplifies integrating Industry 4.0 technology directly into your existing control platform. Expensive secondary networks, gateways and IT support is not needed. IO-Link masters send status signals to the controls and have as the ability to send calculated and raw vibration signals to higher level systems for advanced analytics.
The vibration sensor VVB001 internally acquires and analyzes various process values that are used to detect machine errors.
v-RMS (Machine looseness conditions): Effective value of the vibration velocity, identifies component fatigue.
a-RMS (Machine friction conditions): Effective value of the acceleration, identifies mechanical rubbing.
a-Peak (Machine impact conditions): Maximum acceleration, identifies mechanical impacts.
Crest-Factor: a-Peak/a-RMS, is one of the important measures of overall machine condition.
Temperature: Identifies a rising temperature caused by excessive friction or other effects (e.g. electrical causes).
Raw data: For detailed analysis or cause analysis in case of damage, the sensor also provides raw data of the acceleration recording. These are issued on request as a BLOB (Binary Large Object) and transmitted using IO-Link. The system can record the operating condition at 4 second intervals and transmit the data during several minutes to higher level systems.
